Our Community

Our Community

Aeromedical has provided local EMS services within the High Level / Fort Vermilion region for over 25 years and has become a local icon for quality EMS care. Aeromedical also participates in injury prevention programs, co-response education, community involvement, and standby services.

Community School Programs

Aeromedical currently participates and coordinates mock scenarios for high school students, has particpated in local P.A.R.T.Y. programs to help educate these young adults in proactive risk assessment. Aeromedical believes that through this approach, they can reach young adults before they assume a traumatic event.

Aeromedical also performs many school tours of the bases in both High Level and in Fort Vermilion, which is always a favorite field trip for the younger groups. Being able to see the inside of an ambulance allows for children to experience the sights and sounds of EMS, so that they can have less fear in being cared for in the unfortunate event of an injury or illness.

Co-Responder Programs

Aeromedical is a true believer that the community is the first link in the "Chain of Survival". Due to the geographical nature of Northwest Alberta, many times great distances need to be covered in order to reach the outlying communities in their time of need. Having skilled first responders within these communites provides a critical link in primary care. These individuals, in some cases are the true "lifesavers", and are given the utmost respect for their dedication and assitance during emergent situations. Aeromedical routinely hosts Emergency Medical Responder courses in house to groups interested in strengthening their own communities.

Event Stand-By Services

Aeromedical often partakes in providing local EMS services for community and sporting events held within the region Whether it be a tournament event, a rodeo, or any large gathering for that matter, Aeromedical can have skilled personnel on hand. Aeromedical enjoys this aspect of their work, as it brings a different change of pace for the staff members manning the events. Some of the events you will see us at throughout the year include, Candy Cane Campaign, school job fairs, Santa Clause Parade, Canada Day Parade, and other joint events with the High Level Fire Department.
